When RancherMan & I bought this little piece of paradise several years ago, we were still commuting to Dallas every weekday for our corporate jobs. I was finally able to convince my boss to allow me to telecommute three times each week. Sweet!
Hearing the radio drone on & on about the horrific traffic jams that were always present in my typical route, I’d simply grab a cup of coffee & ‘log in’ on my computer.
Commute Time: 2 minutes! 🙂
But I was always super sensitive about the perception to my in-office cohorts regarding my working from home. I went out of my way to make sure my all my work efforts were very clearly visible. Plus I was always instantly available by office video chat.
And I purposely worked many more hours than I was being paid for ‘just to be fair‘. Oftentimes I worked well into the night and on weekends too.
Still I felt there was a false perception by my coworkers regarding the time I put in for my employer.
D’ya ever wonder what it was like to be on a Texas Homestead? I thought it would be fun to share… Here each day offers something new. Some days we’re focused on land maintenance like mowing pastures or repairing fences. Other days we might focus on bees, the garden or the cattle. But this week we had one day in particular that ended up being a very challenging day for us.
The temps that had once cooled nicely had made a wicked resurgence. On this day between the heat & humidity it was supposed to feel like sweltering triple digits. So RancherMan & I decided to work the cattle early in the morning while it’s cooler. That’s when everything went south…
The misery of itching from a chigger bite can last for weeks. I’ve sure heard some crazy remedies for the itching, most of them WRONG! (and some downright dangerous too). Read on to separate fact from fallacy with these tiny, itchy pests.
Several years ago I saw a one-piece infinity-shaped hair clip in my sister-in-law’s hair and I loved it. It was so pretty, so feminine. I asked her where she got it but she said she couldn’t remember, that she’d had it for years.
Several weeks later I stumbled upon an image of Lilla Rose FlexiClips and excitedly realized that’s the type of clip my SIL had worn! I bought a couple of those hair clips for myself. Even though I felt they were kinda pricey for a hair clip at about $11 – $15, I found that I loved them. I ended up buying several more in a couple of different sizes. They’re so feminine and so easy to use – especially when I just wanna sweep my hair back without fussing too much. Y’all know I hate fuss!
More & more these days people hear a story and then jump on social media making sure everyone knows about this apparent injustice! But it’s important to get the facts before sharing a story. Jumping to conclusions is a big mistake because all too often everything is not as it appears.
Well, well, well, April-the-Giraffe’s baby was finally born. Have y’all watched the live video for the past month? I popped in from time to time but didn’t have enough time to watch too much. But now they’re having folks submit suggestions for the baby’s name. Guess what – this pretty girl was born on that same day too!!
